I got one compliment yesterday but generally people don't notice or care what phone I use. The compliment in question was from a young woman in my doctor's waiting room. She obviously was quite technically minded and had a Note 8 but was thinking about changing over to Apple. I let her feel and play around with the Max for a while while I had a look at her Note 8. She liked the Max but said she would likely stick with Samsung as she uses the pen a lot. Other than that no-one has mentioned my new phone to me apart from one question of cost. Got told I was mad at spending £1249 on a phone. It's hard to counter or disagree with that.
